neut feature hi the vegetation of the temperate zone, at elevations between five and
eight thousand feet. They are, however, impatient of drought, and one only extends
as far west as Kumaon. In the Khasia hills and the Malayan peninsula other species
occur; and the latter, when we become better acquainted with the vegetation of its
mountains, may be expected to yield many species. Ihc genus is common in Java
and the islands of the Eastern Archipelago.
